In the mid-1970's a teenage apprentice at Cortonwood, Barnsley, was working underground in a secluded area when he noticed somebody he at first thought to be one of his colleagues, emerging from a coal face.
The lad was puzzled as he believed that nobody should have been present in this area of the pit. Curiously he watched the figure emerge, until it became clear that it was clothed in outdated uniform, with an old-fashioned square helmet and gaiters and knee-pads. Suddenly afraid, he ran quickly to his colleagues who checked the area on his insistence but found nothing. The young man was made the butt of several jokes as his fellow miners refused to take his sighting seriously... until a short while later, when it was revealed that this very coal face was adjacent to an underground working of the nearby Lundhill Colliery, in which a tragic accident had killed several miners in the 1850's.
